Genes Affected by Spatial Distribution of Fibers

Genes Affected by Spatial Distribution of Fibers

A research team drawn from Poland’s Nencki Institute and Spain’s Instituto de Neurociencias de Alicante (INA) recently found that gene expression can be affected by the distribution of space between units of genetic material, packaged as special fibers. This discovery, which came out of their tests using laboratory mice, could potentially bring the medical community […]

Research: Scientists Sequence Bread Wheat Genome

Research: Scientists Sequence Bread Wheat Genome

A research team led by scientists from the United States, Canada, Germany and the Czech Republic has sequenced the genome of bread wheat. The investigation started in 2011 and took almost three years to be accomplished due to the long sequence of around 100,000 genes. In comparison with the human genetic code of 20,000 units, […]
